Dongle fix for EGR & DPF check engine light

Hi all.
Is there such a thing as a plug 'n' play no re-map required dongle that I can use to keep the check engine light from coming up and regens being done?
If so, where can I get one please?

I've done the EGR full blanking plate a week ago, and before the weekend, I'm buying a 20mm x 500mm bit and would like to core my DPF through to the cat.
I want to avoid future regens as this will obviously not be required any more.
I will eventually have a full re-map done but this is very pricey in Australia.

I've done some quick searches with key words but there's so much on this, it can get a little confusing.

Many thanks.

Thanks Chipmik.
That Yahoo group is full of spam now.
I left a message for the guy and I also emailed him directly.
I guess I'll just wait for a day or so now for a reply..
Cheers.

Your best bet now is to either find one on e-bay (I sold mine), rare as hens teeth now. Or get a map. Autolusso do an EGR removal map for £150 (I've got this), don't think they do the DpF part any more (as they are an not centre), but they can probably put you in the right direction.

Re-reading your original question, see you are based in Australia.
Autolusso do have a service when they can e-mail you the map and the program to write it.
As you are in a foreign country they may be able to supply you with the DPF and EGR map.

Ive got one if you are interested. I had it for my old 159 for a year before I had a egr map out.
My dongle is for the egr only.

Isnt it only a matter of setting a dip-switch/ solder a leg of the PIC to gnd or has it only got code in it for EGR? :-)

Hmm, interested.
Please message me with how much you would like for it including postage to Australia, 4070.

Cheers.
